Justin Bieber's habit for stripping off has reportedly landed him an endorsement deal for Calvin Klein underwear.
The Baby hitmaker has become known for showing off his branded boxer shorts in recent months by posting a number of 'selfies' online, and now sources tell DailyMail.co.uk he is set to be unveiled as a new spokesmodel for Calvin Klein by the end of 2014.
An insider says, "Justin has shot for Calvin Klein, we hope the results will be released later this year."
If the news is true, Bieber will join the likes of rapper-turned-actor Mark Wahlberg and British supermodel Kate Moss, who have both previously posed for Calvin Klein underwear.
Dutch model Lara Stone fronts the brand's current advertisements.
Brooke Shields is set to lift the lid on her controversial relationship with her mother in a new book. The actress/model shot to fame as a child star under the guidance of her mum Teri, who managed her daughter and helped her land provocative jobs including a role as a young prostitute in 1978 film Pretty Baby and a series of sexy Calvin Klein adverts as a teen.
Teri faced criticism for allowing her young daughter to tackle such controversial work, and Shields is now planning to put her side of the story in print in a new book.
She tells America's Social Life Magazine, "The reason I wanted to write the book is not to say: 'You didn't understand: She was the best mother in the world'. I'm not holding her up on a pedestal, nor am I painting her as a villain or a victim... You know what's so funny about a lot of the things that they (the critics) were pushing back on her for? Those things were the least of my worries. I was exploited? I was in school full time... Seriously, the opportunities I had... I wasn't worried about what they were saying... We would go to (famed New York nightclub) Studio 54 together, but I would be home by 11."
Country singer Justin Moore has become a father for the third time. The Til My Last Day hitmaker and his wife, Kate, welcomed their third daughter on Monday (14Jul14).
Moore announced the happy news in a statement which reads: "We're very excited to welcome Rebecca Klein Moore into the world. Both Mom and Klein are healthy."
The couple's new daughter joins sisters Kennedy Faye, two, and Ella Kole, four.
Moore adds, "Her two older sisters helped with her first bath and are thrilled to have a little sister! We are blessed."
Moore and his wife have been married since 2007.
Kate Moss' little sister is following in the British supermodel's footsteps after signing on as a new face of Calvin Klein. Lottie Moss appears in new ads for the Calvin Klein Jeans x mytheresa.com The Re-Issue Project, a capsule collection of iconic denim pieces which will be sold exclusively online.
Photographer Michael Avedon captured the 16 year old in a series of eye-catching black-and-white images.
The new ads will debut on Wednesday (16Jul14).
Avedon, whose grandfather shot Calvin Klein's iconic campaign with Brooke Shields in the early 1980s, says, "Lottie truly represents the essence of the Calvin Klein girl - intriguing innocence with utter beauty. It was wonderful to photograph this beautiful young lady!"
Moss' big sister made her Calvin Klein debut with Mark Wahlberg in 1993.
Model-turned-actress Amber Valetta was addicted to drugs and alcohol at the height of her catwalk fame. The Revenge actress, 40, told a live seminar for wellness website MindBodyGreen.com last week (ends13Jul14) that she began trying to get high from glue and scented pens when she was only eight years old. Her habit took a turn for the worse when she moved to Europe at the age of 18 to pursue her modelling career, and cocaine and alcohol became readily available. The catwalk beauty, who fronted campaigns for Versace and Calvin Klein, says, "I was at the top of my game, probably 20 years old, had everything in front of me and I put everything on the line for my addiction. Everything. All my friendships, my family, my job. I had a multi-million dollar deal and I showed up the first day to shoot this campaign high and drunk. I didn't care. And that's just to show you that addiction takes you to the worst places... "I'm not a victim, I do not blame my parents, I don't blame my family, and I don't blame anything that happened to me that was negative. I think it does affect me and I'm sure it made me partially who I am and want to get out of myself, but I know for certain that I am an addict through and through. Even if I'd had this blessed and amazing childhood I'd still want to get higher, I'd still want to get out of myself." Valetta got sober at 25 but insists it is still a challenge to stay clean, adding, "My disease is only an arm's length away from me... I got sober and how I stay sober today 15 years later is that I continually turn inward and look at my disease because my disease shapeshifts."
An advert for anti-ageing pills promoted by supermodel Christy Turlington has been banned because authorities claim the drug's effectiveness has not been proved. Officials at British watchdog the Advertising Standards Authority have outlawed the commercial for Imedeen, a drug produced by pharmaceuticals giant Pfizer, which claims to reduce wrinkles, as evidence of the product's success provided by the company was too weak.
ASA investigators report in many cases women taking part in the trial saw no beneficial effects whatsoever from the drug and deemed the TV spot misleading.
Turlington, who is best known for representing Calvin Klein, does not star in the promo clip but is global brand ambassador for Imedeen.
Pfizer have said they will alter the video in light of the decision.

From the neon brights and fingerless gloves of an '80s era Carrie Bradshaw on The Carrie Diaries to the high-class couture sported by your favorite Gossip Girl, costume designer Eric Daman has certainly left his mark on the small screen. He's also made the fledgling CW network a much more stylish destination, turning the little network into a big name when it comes to fashion. With The Carrie Diaries ending its run and Gossip Girl having signed her last "xoxo," Daman is likely to be in high demand for productions looking for his magic touch. Until he finds his next gig, the viewing public will remain in desperate need of styling tips from our television fashion idols. Thankfully, we managed to track down Eric Daman to ask our most pressing fashion questions, from how to adopt '80s trends without looking like a throwback, to what our favorite Gossip Girl characters would be sporting in 2014.
The weather is finally warm and spring has sprung, so what are your top tips for killing it sartorially this spring? What trends should we all keep an eye out for?
ED: "For spring this year, what's trending are pretty pastels in hi-tech silhouettes. Vintage bomber jackets are getting a modern makeover. Skirts are getting longer (the retro tea length is gaining popularity). And boxy tops in shift shape are giving the body con trend a run for its money. Carrie's 'Carrie Bag' would certainly be on trend with the giant designer DIY movement underfoot. The low heeled pump is seeing a moment in the sun, while the kaleidoscopic print is still on trend and being mixed with other print patterns for emphasis. Tribal stripes and fringe are enjoying worldwide appeal. Lace and open-weave are on board this spring, and metallic hasn't lost is foot-hold either. My top tip is to be mindful of what I call the allure of the hybrid: structural, material, visual, and cultural hybrids are the name of the game overall this coming year in style."
If you were still dressing the characters of Gossip Girl today, in 2014, what would today's Serena outfit look like? What would Blair be wearing? How about Chuck?
ED: "Serena would definitely be hanging out at Coachella, in maybe a soft-hard beautiful broiderie anglaise Isabel Marant top in soft pinks and whites with layer-cakey ruffley details, a lite-puff shoulder and see-through seams. She'd pair it with something by Emilio Pucci, either black-and-white graphic shorts or a rainbow metallic mini with Nicholas Kirkwood sleek pointed zig-zag leather and suede pumps in orange, turquoise, and pink. She'd throw on a shaggy Proenza Schouler coat if the evening got a little chilly, with a pair of retro-deco earrings that sparkle by the light of the bonfire."
"Blair would be having lunch at the Pierre Hotel, very much in a calf-length Burberry pencil skirt in structured lace with Byzantine inspired crystal cluster embellishments. She'd wear an Elie Saab watercolor shouldered top, under a floral embossed Christian Dior vivid orange half jacket, with an Alexander McQueen studded black nappa leather knucklebox clutch and Christian Louboutin Bollywood Boulevard PVC pumps."
"Chuck would be at the cricket club with the urban daddy crowd for a quick round in a Bastiaan Van Gaalen polo shirt, summer weight Moncler blue quilted blazer with white trim, a Salvatore Ferragamo vest, Louis Vuitton plaid trousers, and a Jimmy Choo tassled summer loafer."
What's one current trend you think the Gossip Girl characters would love? You're always taking trends and making them your own. How would you have made the trend Upper East Side worthy?
ED: "I can see a 2014 version of Uptown meets Downtown in looks where Renaissance-inspired maximalism meets tribalistic geometry."
What are the challenges of working with time period costuming for The Carrie Diaries? How do you keep things fresh while still staying true to the '80s?
ED: "We knew we had to be honest and address the '80s, but we had to be honest in a selective way from an editorial perspective. The term 'aspirational authenticity' was a guiding mantra that served reliably. I wanted to do justice to styles of the '80s that were inspiring designers from Calvin Klein to Dolce and Gabbana to Balmain to Marc by Marc Jacobs to Charlotte Ronson to DKNY, all the way down the fashion food chain to include fast fashion purveyors like TopShop, UrbanOutfitters, Zara, and H&M. There was so much '80s inspired fashion available by contemporary designers and retailers, the opportunity to select the most flattering of the range of choices was clearly the best direction."
For people who love The Carrie Diaries fashion but don't want to look like they just walked out of a vintage MTV video, how can you translate that killer '80s fashion into a more modern look?
ED: "I know what you mean. I made a point to keep it a camouflaged combination of vintage and contemporary designs, which is kind of a very '80s approach to begin with. I indulged a bit in my irresistable desire to mix and blend actual vintage pieces from the '80s, which we acquired from Bill Blass, Norma Kamali, Thierry Mugler, Arnold Scaasi, and Sonya Rykiel, with modern fashions like Missoni, American Apparel, Modcloth, Nasty Gal, and Mara Hoffman. We used accessories by Alexis Bittar, Alex Woo, Swarovski, Alex Woo, and Magdalena Stokalska among many others."
As a huge fan of Gossip Girl and an even bigger fan of the fashion, I have to ask what some of your all-time favorite looks were from the series.
ED: "That's a tough one. I'll make a deal with you. I'll tell you some of my favorite episodes and you can extrapolate the outfits from there...Season 1: 'Hi Society.' Season 2: 'Summer Kind of Wonderful.' Season 3: 'Last Tango, then Paris.' Season 4: 'The Undergraduate.' Season 5: 'GG.' Season 6: 'New York I love You XOXO.'"

Hollywood actresses Rooney Mara, Naomi Watts, Lupita Nyong'o and Julianne Moore were honoured at the Calvin Klein Women in Film event at the Cannes Film Festival on Thursday (15May14). The stars gathered at a private villa for the exclusive bash and were also treated to a performance by British singer Jessie Ware.
Pop star Rita Ora celebrated her new U.K. number one single by stripping down and posting a nearly nude snap of herself online. The 23 year old's track, I Will Never Let You Down, hit the top spot on the U.K. iTunes chart, and Ora took to her Instagram account to thank her fans for showing their support.
In the snap, Ora is clad only in black and white Calvin Klein underwear, and she shows off a large "1" which is penned across her back in what appears to be red lipstick. The singer is holding her hair up, while the side of her left breast can be seen.
She added the caption, "#iwillneverletyoudown it's because of you!! BOTS (fans)!!! Thank you #uvealwaysgotmyback." Ora had also treated fans to a striptease during a show at G-A-Y in London over the weekend (10-11May14), stripping out of a man's suit to reveal her bra and boxers.
Will Smith's teenage son Jaden is courting controversy like his sister Willow after posting a snap of himself posing half-naked reality TV star Kylie Jenner.
Last week (05May14), former Hannah Montana actor Moises Arias posted a black-and-white image on his Instagram.com page of himself without a shirt on while 13-year-old Willow lounges on a bed next to him. The picture caused a storm of criticism, prompting Arias to delete the image from his social networking accounts.
Now Willow's 15-year-old brother is taking the heat after Kim Kardashian's half-sister posted a similar black-and-white snap on her Tumblr blog. The photo shows Jenner, 16, straddling Jaden from behind, as he wears only Calvin Klein boxers and a backwards baseball cap. Alongside the post, Jenner writes, "*Ksss* (sic) Ahhh... 2014."
The pair is reportedly dating. After critics questioned the appropriateness of Willow's picture, her mother, actress, Jada Pinkett Smith, defended the controversial image, telling TMZ.com, "Here's the deal - there was nothing sexual about that picture or that situation. You guys are projecting your trash onto it."
